The Silver Spirit III and Silver Spur III were introduced in 1993 featuring engine improvements, more power and some cosmetic updates over the earlier models; the Silver Spur being the longer wheelbase version and the independent adjustment of the rear seats. The interior was dominated by the expected combination of fine wood and leather and interestingly was also the first Rolls-Royce to be fitted with a retractable Spirit of Ecstasy mascot atop the radiator grille.
This beautifully maintained example with 19 service stamps recorded, as well as two additional recent service bills, was the property of a retired Army Colonel who has both looked after it and maintained it without regard to cost. The car is finished in dark metallic blue paintwork to the exterior and has clearly been always garage-kept. The magnolia leather interior is in excellent condition, piped in dark blue with blue carpets and highly figured burr walnut. The headlining is also unmarked magnolia hide with additional occasional tables fitted for rear passengers. There is no corrosion evident under the bonnet, wheel arches or bumper surrounds, all usual hot-spots. The air conditioning blows cold and the engine runs silently with the gearbox seamless and imperceptible in operation. A good Spur is often hard to find and this example is certainly hard to fault, especially with a comprehensive history file and both factory owner’s book packs. A full pre-sale service and check-up has also been performed by noted Rolls-Royce experts, Colbrook Specialists immediately prior to the sale.
